Conference was AWESOME!!!

I think! I havent heard all the talks yet. Well I mean I have but they were all in spanish sooooo. I only understood Elder Christiansen from the Seventy when he recited the First Vision cause I have that memorized. I also understood a few words from Elder Holland, those words were, my friend, son, died! I am trying to listen to all those in English so next week I will let you know what I got out of it!

This week was pretty interesting. We only contacted 32 people taught 8 lessons and have 2 people with baptismal dates. But we found 4 new investigators that are to say the least interesting. These 4 girls were about as giggly as they come and we were a little worried to enter the house cause we thought they might have been smoking the good stuff if you know what I mean. We felt like we would be ok so we went in. We could barely get a word out our mouths before one of them would just start blubbering on about something. The biggest thing they couldnt understand is why we were here. We tried giving them the to serve to lord answer but they didnt buy it. I noticed that one of them had a wedding ring so I asked her if she was married, she said yes. I already knew that she had a daughter so I asked her if she loved her family and loved being with them, again she answered yes. I pulled out pictures I had of my family and showed them to her. She noticed a picture of me and Taeler and asked who it was so I told her it was my girlfriend. She asked how long we had been together and I told her about 3 years and she all the sudden got a confused look on her face. She asked me again why are you here if you could be with your family and with your girlfriend. I explained to her that God was willing to give up his only son to be killed so Each and every one of us can live forever. I explained that the Lord asked me to serve him and he sacrificed his son for me so why wouldnt I serve him. I asked her if she would do anything she needed to make sure her daughter had a good life and she said yes, so I asked her why wouldnt God want the same for you since you are his daughter? At that moment the spirit flooded the room and my companion kinda took over and started explaining his side as well. This girl has a problem with smoking so has a few doubts about getting baptised but 1 of her friends accepted the invited to be baptised so we are going back tomorrow to teach them so pray for the spirit to help us all!

Thank you guys for all the help you have given me in preparation for this incredible experience. If any of you have questions about my mission or want an explanation of something I said please feel free to email me and I will answer you next week!

Below is pictures of my huge bathroom and the breakfast of champions! Apples dipped in Dulce de Leche! Sorry for the lack of pictures lately, the internet isnt exactly high speed here so uploading this is a challenge!
